Volume based pricing.

How does Chargebee handle volume based pricing?

That is if the price of a plan/product gets cheaper or expensive based on the number of units that are purchased.

If you're using Chargebee APIs, here's a detailed guide on setting up volume based pricing in Chargebee: https://www.chargebee.com/usecase-guides/volume-pricing/

You could setup volume based pricing using quantity based recurring addons in Chargebee.

For example let's say you want to setup 3 price slabs for your customers to choose from for a product "A".

1. If customer purchases 1-5 units, price per unit = \$5

2. If customer purchases 6-10 units, price per unit = \$4

3. If customer purchases 11-15 units, price per unit =\$3

To achieve the above scenario, you would need to create a 0\$ base plan and  3 recurring addons for the product A in Chargebee as follows :-

addon 3 = \$3 / unit

Based on the no. of units of product A that the customer selects, you could then pass the appropriate addon along with the hosted pages plan URL for checkout purpose. Here's more on passing addons to the hosted page.

is it possible to programmatically control the discount percentage of an add-on?
meaning that for same add-on you can apply volume discount so get 5 pay x from 6-10 you will pay (x-10%x)

Hey Ngorali,

I'm sorry, at the moment discounts are applied to the entire plan or addon set and it's not possible to define multiple coupons of the same type (Percentage in this case) in a single subscription.

I'll take this up as a feature request for our team to consider for future revamps.

Hello guys,

We are glad to inform you that volume based pricing can now be easily set up from the UI.

If your use case involves setting up prices based on the quantity purchased, you can now create plans in Chargebee for the same and the users will be billed based on the slab rates that you set up.

To configure a plan with volume based pricing, navigate to Product Catalog >> Plans >> Create New Plan >> Setup the details >> Under Pricing model, choose Volume >> You will be able to choose the currency and set up the slab rates (the price of the product when a certain quantity of it is purchased)

Here is a screenshot for your reference.
